i have just spent the last 2 hours going over this thread and i must say -- that it is a very help full thread . i know there are a lot of people out there who have gotten a lot of good info from it. including myself. as i ride a 83 interstate that i spent too much money on. i think i could have bought a 1500 for what i put into it. but it is now a ride any where bike.

enjoying the pics too. i keep for getting to take pics of my repairs that were made.

so keep things coming. hope your health is improving too. its hell to get old , aint it ?

Looks like a decent bike Copper204. My first wing was an 84 that was two tone silver/grey. Loved that machine!

Old age isn't for sissy's. It's not the golden age, its the rusted age.

This entire buildup makes me want to fly to California, buy the bike and solo it back to South Carolina. Only challenge to that is I swore I wouldn't buy another vehicle that was older than the 2 1987's I have right now. Classic's without a garage can be unfun. Still thinking about doing it anyway

Ok, I am getting my act together... I have the garage cleaned up and will slowly start back onto ELLA.. I will start from front and work my way to rear. My little list:

1. Pull front wheel..
2. De-mount tire and clean buff and paint front wheel.
3. Go over disc's, replace if out of spec..
4. Replace fork seals and sliders.
5. remove rear wheel and give same treatment.
6. all new meats all around.
7. Serious scrubbing...
8. Full detailed inspection of paint..
9. If paint fails.. I will paint entire bike for fun....LOL

Therapy bike after all..

Be like me: LIVE YOUR LIFE IN SUCH A MANNER. THAT WHEN YOUR FEET HIT THE FLOOR. THE DEVIL SIGHS AND SAYS, "OH DANG HE\'S AWAKE"
